Lausanne '74 inspired evangelicals around the world to take seriously the full implications of the Gospel for mission. This was especially true of a worldwide network of radical evangelical mission theologians and practitioners, whose post-Lausanne reflections found harbour in the notion of ""Mission as Transformation."" This missiology integrated evangelism and social concern like no other, and it lifted up theological voices coming from the Two-thirds World to places of prominence. This book documents the definitive gatherings, theological tensions, and social forces within and without evangelicalism that led up to Mission as Transformation. And it does so through a global-local grid that points the way toward greater holistic mission in the twenty-first century. ""Dr. Al Tizon puts us in his debt by tracing the Evangelical and Pentecostal streams that contributed to the development of Mission as Transformation in the 70's and 80's, and its particular expressions in ministry among the poor."" --Canon Dr. Chris Sugden, Executive Secretary of Anglican Mainstream ""A veteran networker, teacher, church planter and pioneer in holistic ministries, Al Tizon takes us into a deeper appreciation of faith and works models of sharing the gospel of the Kingdom of God."" --Lorisa ""Corrie"" De Boer, Associate Professor of Urban Ministry, Asian Theological Seminary, Manila ""Al Tizon has written a groundbreaking book, at once rooted in the Filipino context and relevant to global context. This is essential reading for anyone interested in the future of the Christian mission."" Philip L.
